Impact de la géomatique dans les organisations de l'archéologie

Abstract : This study deals with the impact of the geographical information systems (GIS) in the french institutions of archaeological research. An examination of projects drawn from various contexts ; (archaeological services of regions with a measure of autonomy, national institute of preventive archaeological research (INRAP), Ministry of Cultural Heritage, University and institute of research gave us the opportunity to go deeper into the peculiarities and durability of the practices connected to GIS. This first approach is followed by the implementation and the analysis of ten experiments realized with the archaeological teams of the departmental service of archaeology of Val-d'Oise (SDAVO) and those of the UMR 7041 “Archaeologies and Sciences of Antiquity”, which entitled us to think about the developments modes of a geographical database applied to the archaeological research. This double initiative shows us that the relevance of questioning the format techniques and the methods by which there tolls are implemented, in order to take into account the differences in rationalities and perceptions of the archaeologists. It highlights the strategic aspect of mutualization and sharing of the equipments, datas and skills. The use of the GIS in archaeology has to be conceive as a double process: - Integration for the development of data models which allows the assimilation of the organisational specificities of every profession. - Generalisation by the use of standards. Their constitution remains problematic and still has to be solved.
